Girls, Don't Go Back To Your Cheating Ex

Girls, if I could give you one piece of advice to protect your heart it would be to know your worth. Someone can only hurt you if you give them the power to. I know he has dreamy eyes, a soft smile, and perfect hair but if he doesn't treat you right, then he doesn't deserve you.

Let me tell you a little the type of guys that I used to go after. I crave something that is stable-yet always changing. Fun-but not too crazy. Smart-just not smarter than me. This resulted in guys that knew just what to say and when to say it.

Someone who would plan out a future for you and not be able to hold to their word on a movie date. For not caring very much they really know how to make a girl feel really amazing, just for a short period of time.

Before you know it, they are onto someone knew and not thinking twice. You think the tiniest gestures are the cutest because you don't need much to make you happy.

The reasoning behind that small gesture isn't the result of them not being able to get you something big, but rather that they didn't care enough to try hard to impress you.

The thing with these guys is that they have all of this confidence and this gives you the impression that they really know their shit, but they don't. They talk big when in reality they are holding onto you until the next best thing comes along. It really is sad that they do this because they think it will increase their value.

Most of them probably have seen their dads treat women like this and they just assume it will work the same way for them. This is not the case. Shitty people will always be shitty people.

If they cheat on you, leave. If they don't know what they want, give them time but don't wait up for them. If they don't treat you equal to your worth, find someone who will.

You might think you're the one who is the problem.

WELL STOP THINKING THAT!! You are amazing in every way possible and the moment you realize that is the moment that you won't settle for anything less than you deserve

So girls, find you a guy who will help raise the kids that you will be proud of one day. Date the guy who treats you like a queen even when you're sitting on the couch in your sweatpants binge-watching Netflix and eating ice cream.

Get someone who can challenge you intellectually, but won't tell you that you're wrong even if you obviously wrong. Someone who gives you small gestures that have big meaning.

He puts your needs above your own because you're the most important thing to him.

Honey, you deserve nothing less than the best, it just takes time to get there. Use this time to make the best you the best that you can be. You can't make two things fit together if one of them is broken.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

It wasn't until I hit 23 years old that I started getting hangovers. It could've been from two glasses of wine or even a margarita at happy hour, the next day, consider me bed-bound until further notice.

According to Urban Dictionary, a "simp" is defined as "a man that puts himself in a subservient/submissive position under women in the hopes of winning them over, without the female bringing anything to the table." There are many other definitions for a "simp," but basically it's shaming men who are kind to women without getting anything in return.

Let's just stop attacking nice men. Work out your own issues, don't project your shortcomings onto another man. What happened to the brotherhood? Y'all can lie for each other, but can't raise each other up? You guys can encourage murder, gang rape, and violence against women — or at least stay silent about it — but can't let your brother know it ain't cool when they bring you down for being nice to women with no expectation?

Living With Bipolar Disorder Is An Everyday Battle, But I'm Fighting It

I went from depression, to anxiety, to bipolar disorder.

I've thought about how to write this since my diagnosis. I've thought about what kind of feelings it might bring up from my mom, former friends, and even myself. I've rewritten it a thousand times in my head, but never could quite get the words onto my notepad, but tonight I'm going to sit down and write it.

The Caribbean is a place where people go for vacation, but if you set out from a cruise ship you miss out on all the beautiful culture. Their exotic beaches are nothing without their zinging food and hospitality. Locals in the Caribbean are warmhearted with a zest to live life to the fullest.

This is exactly where most of their words and phrases come from, having a good time. I definitely enjoyed myself living in the Caribbean, but it's not always about lounging. They get work done too and I've learned proper phrases for accomplishments.

I've been feeling a little down lately, with the understanding that friends don't last forever and that I can't always please my parents.

Nobody Wants To Grieve, But That's The Price We Pay For Love

Grief never comes when you think it should. It comes when a certain song comes on or the sun shines through the window just right.

Death always seems to come when life is good and everything starts to be going alright. And then out of nowhere, you're reminded of how cruel life can be. The stages of grief don't always go in order, they come in waves or all at once. Grief never comes when you think it should. It comes when a certain song comes on or the sun shines through the window just right. I take comfort in the fact that everyone experiences grief, even when you feel all alone knowing that everyone goes through a process that helps a little bit.
